pool party!

It only took three years and one Brother-in-law to get the pool up.

The Big Guy was dead set against this, for reasons I do not understand. I know they won't get a whole lot of use out of it (We live on an island off the coast of Maine. Our average daily temps are in the 60's. Seriously. Which is great for sleeping, not so much for pool-ing...), but if it's just going to sit in the attic anyway...we might as well set it up for the few days they can get in it.
It's good exercise, right?
I mean the setting up, not the swimming.


And having a pool gives one the perfect excuse for margaritas.
Frozen Strawberry Mango Margaritas.

Now, she'd like you to think she was drinking one, and carrying one to somebody else....

...but I refer you to this picture of an aimless stroll around the yard...with one in each hand....


  1. I'd need a heater for water in Maine. Kids don't seem to grow thermal-detecting nerve endings until puberty, though, so I'd say you're set for now.

  2. I just read over your last few posts and it looks like you have so much fun! The place where you live looks like a close knit community. You know how to enjoy life!
